Renfrew-Collingwood lies on the eastern side of Vancouver, and is one of the fastest-growing residential areas in the city.

This area includes mix of families and single professionals, housed in a variety of older single-family homes, condominiums, and complexes. Renfrew-Collingwood is in a phase of redevelopment, attributed to the two Skytrain Stations built in the recent years and has brought big-box chain stores, Vancouver Film Studios, and Vancouver Art Institute to the area. Residents enjoy several parks, such as Norquay Park, Slocan Park and Renfrew Community Park, which all include playgrounds and sport fields.
